Covering Her Assets: A Dix Dodd Mystery

Norah Wilson
3

 Dix Dodd is going undercover again, this time at the behest of Elizabeth Bee. No, make that Mrs. Hugh Drammen. Our favorite, ever-enterprising spa worker has snagged herself a wealthy octogenarian husband. But she believes someone is out to kill her darling “Hugh-Bear”. She’s not about to let that happen, at least not before their first anniversary when her inheritance entitlement kicks in. According to that pesky pre-nup, if Hugh should die before that critical anniversary, she gets nothing. Unfortunately, Hugh Drammen refuses to believe he’s in any danger and won’t condone an investigation, so Elizabeth has to act surreptitiously.

Enter Dix, posing as Dee Bee, Elizabeth’s cougar mother, Dylan, posing as Dee’s newest gigolo/boy-toy, Magnus, and Mrs. Presley in the role of Elizabeth’s Nanny Jane. Throw in a patriarch with OCD, a daughter and son-in-law with obvious marital problems, their recalcitrant daughter, an odd, anti-social nephew visiting from Alaska, a housekeeper with a bad back that prevents her from housekeeping, a bevy of servants, and a beer-drinking rescue dog, and you have the Drammen household.

It’s a bizarre situation, but for a fat fee from Elizabeth, Dix is more than happy to take on the job of Covering Her Assets.

Don't miss the this exciting, New York Times bestselling adventure from Preston & Child, in which the secrets of a mysterious ancient tablet may point the way to untold treasure--or unspeakable danger.
"I just want to be crystal clear about this: if it has value, we're gonna steal it. Are you with me?" Effective Engineering Solutions has been inexplicably shut down and the head of the company, Eli Glinn, has all but vanished. Fresh off a diagnosis that gives him only months to live, Gideon Crew is contacted by one of his coworkers at EES, Manuel Garza, who tells him the two have mere hours to collect their belongings before the office closes forever. After years of dedicated service and several high-risk missions, theirs seems like the most ignoble of terminations-until Gideon and Garza happen upon an incredible discovery. After centuries of silence, a code-breaking machine at EES has cracked the long-awaited translation of a centuries-old stone tablet, the Phaistos Disc, that dates back to an otherwise completely unknown, ancient civilization. The mysteries of the message itself hint at incredible treasures, and perhaps even a world-altering secret. No one remains at EES to take on this most remarkable mission but Gideon and Garza. The two agree to solve the mystery of the disc's message and split the spoils: the perfect parting gift their employer doesn't know he has given. What lies at the end of the trail may save Gideon's life-or bring it to a sudden, shocking close. As Gideon and Garza soon discover, some missions are more dangerous than others. But as Gideon has proved again and again, there's no such thing as too great a risk when you're living on borrowed time.

This box set includes the three full length novels in the Serve and Protect series. 

Included in this box set are GUARDING SUZANNAH, SAVING GRACE and PROTECTING PAIGE. 

GUARDING SUZANNAH - Criminal defense attorney Suzannah Phelps is the bane of the Fredericton police department (they call her She-Rex for her habit of shredding cops in the witness box). She is currently being stalked, but is reluctant to report it to the police, whom she half suspects of being the perpetrators. But when Detective John (Quigg) Quigley learns of it, he's determined to protect her, at considerable risk to his career. They've struck sparks off each other in the courtroom, and he's burning to do the same in the bedroom. When the danger escalates, he has the perfect excuse to pose as her boyfriend, but the closer they get, the more the lines between pretense and reality blur. 

SAVING GRACE - After wrecking her car and waking in hospital with amnesia, fledgling reporter Grace Morgan has no idea why she’d been in the process of leaving the husband she loves so dearly. Her husband, Police Detective Ray (Razor) Morgan tells her she was leaving him for another man, but that just can’t be so. Can it? She’s determined to remember, even if it kills her. And it just might. When bullets start to fly, Ray is forced to take the wife he believes faithless on the lam until they can figure out who is trying to kill them. 

PROTECTING PAIGE - Single parent Paige Harmer is at her wit's end about her son. Dillon’s a good kid, but he’s fallen in with a bad crowd. She’s determined to enlist the help of her next door neighbor, the extremely handsome and much younger Tommy Godsoe. Tommy is a local cop, and until he got shot recently in a police raid, was a dog handler. His injury is such that he can never go back to field work, and he refuses to be a desk jockey. All he wants is to nurse his wounds in solitude, and he’s done a great job driving his friends and colleagues away. But Paige is an unstoppable force. Before he knows it, he’s drawn into their lives. As it turns out, Paige and Dillon are going to need a cop in their corner. And Tommy needs Paige to drag him out of his self-pity and back to life.
